The Little Miami Scenic Trail (LMST) is one of the longest paved, multi-use trails in the United States.
The trail currently spans five counties, extending 78 miles from Springfield, Ohio, to Anderson Township in southwestern Ohio.

The Little Miami Scenic Trail can be accessed at the following Great Parks:
- Avoca Trailhead (8063 Wooster Pike, Cincinnati, Ohio 45227)
- Little Miami Golf Center (3811 Newtown Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45244)
Trail parking and access is also available at Bass Island (located on Newtown Road just south of Wooster Pike) and the southern trail terminus (located next to Speedway gas station at 5030 Batavia Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45244).
Due to increased usage of the trail, the parking lot located next to Speedway can fill up quickly. When this happens, overflow parking is available 1.5 miles away at Clear Creek Park (6200 Batavia Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45244).
Beechmont Bridge Connection Project
In 2016, Great Parks extended the Little Miami Scenic Trail by 3.15 miles from the Little Miami Golf Center to its current terminus near Beechmont Avenue and State Route 32. The next step is to continue the trail by bringing it across the Little Miami Scenic River and tying it into the Lunken Airport trail and Ohio River Trail to downtown Cincinnati.
Columbia Connector Trail Project
In spring 2020, Great Parks completed construction of Phases 1 and 2 of the Columbia Connector Trail project. Ultimately, the 1.6-mile extension of the Little Miami Scenic Trail will connect rides and walkers to neighborhoods and businesses along Wooster Pike and provide a critical link to other regional trail networks, such as CROWN.
